‘This is a light touch regime procurement which falls under Schedule 3 of the PCR 2015 Regulations’

Provision of training services for police, fire and general.

The Framework is a collaborative framework between the police and fire service for the delivery of apprenticeship, degree and training programmes. We are looking for colleges and HEIs and other training providers to be on the Framework.

The East Midland forces have been early national adopters of the PCDA with programme in 2018 and 2019. This commercial process will be to identify the longer-term provider(s) for the PCDA and DHEP as the forces move fully into the Police Education Qualification Framework (PEQF). A single provider is being sought in each force for new intakes of both the PCDA and DHEP from June 2020.

This process is being organised regionally but each force will have a different recruitment profile and some varying delivery requirement, notably linked to their policing operating model. Any contract would be with each individual force and therefore providers will be asked in the process to indicate if they wish to be considered for an individual force or a combination of the forces involved.

— year 1: 75/25 split in favour of force,

— year 2: 50/50,

— year 3: 30/70 split in favour of HE provider.
